Surrogacy

Surrogacy

Bridge is dedicated to resolving fertility issues for all our patients and, for some, the solution lies in surrogacy.

Whether abroad or in the UK, surrogacy is a big step and requires serious thought, careful planning and total support. During our surrogacy consultation sessions, we get to know each prospective family well and make sure we understand the social and medical that issues each member faces.

At Bridge we are able to support both host surrogacy and straight surrogacy.

We also advise every couple undertaking a surrogacy arrangement to seek legal advice regarding the birth registration and the Parental Responsibility Agreements and Parental Orders which are required. We advise that intended parents and host surrogates take legal advice independently of each other and reach a very clear agreement.
 

Host surrogacy

Host surrogacy describes a treatment in which the eggs of the intended mother or in some cases the eggs of a third party donor are fertilised by the intended father's sperm.  If the intended mother’s eggs are used, this type of surrogacy enables the child to be genetically related to both the intended parents. Donor eggs fertilised with the male partner’s sperm also fulfil UK regulatory requirements, as do frozen embryos which contain the gametes of one or other of the intended parents.

Straight surrogacy

Straight surrogacy involves the insemination of the surrogate with the intended father’s sperm. The surrogate effectively acts as an egg donor to the intended parents. This means that the child will be genetically related to the surrogate and the intended father.

Sperm quarantine

In both host and straight surrogacy arrangements undertaken at the Bridge Centre it is necessary that the intended father’s sperm is frozen and quarantined prior to being used for treatment.
